Redefining wood to replace fossil fuel-based products (courtesy of Business Finland).Global oceans are full of plastic waste. We want to provide the first real solution to single-use plastics by replacing them with wood-based materials.”

Finland isn’t just known for its saunas and vodka chocolates. In fact, it is Europe’s most heavily forest country with 86% of its land area -23 million hectares - under forest cover. The Scandinavian country’s innovative and dynamic forest industry cluster consists of more than 50 pulp and paper mills and more than 240 other production sites for wood products. The Finnish forest giants are global players and lead the development and production of new higher value-added bio-based products.

In this video, Business Finland, a government-backed funding agency, promotes the positive benefits of Finland’s forest industry and the country’s ability to turn its “green gold” into a range of products, such as biofuels used in aviation and biomass used in food.

Speaking in this video, Tuomas Mustonen, managing director of Finnish bio-based technology company Paptic, says: “Global oceans are full of plastic waste. We want to provide the first real solution to single-use plastics by replacing them with wood-based materials.
